This course is designed to develop an integrated understanding of human structure and function, and an appreciation for the close interrelationship between anatomy and physiology. Clinical examples utilized in the course will assist students in learning that the disease process is a disruption of homeostasis and a breakdown of the normal integration of form and function, and that medical intervention may restore normal function. Health and wellness issues will be discussed to reinforce the basic concepts of human structure and function by applying them in practical ways to current problems in medicine, public health, athletics, fitness, and trends in research and technology.
